Have you ever seen me wearing a crazy, laser-light helmet on my head, with red-flashing nasal probes shoved into my nostrils, and thought... ..."What the heck is that, and why would someone ever choose such a horrific fashion statement?" But stick with me here because there's actually something to the science of this so-called use of "photobiomodul…

I first became aware of this episode's podcast guest, Hamilton Souther, when I heard him interviewed by Aubrey Marcus in a fascinating discussion about "sorcery vs. medicine."

Your body doesn't know what it doesn't know. What I mean by that is that if you introduce a foreign substance, your body's immune system will mount a response – and often, that response can have negative health consequences. From steroids to even everyday legal compounds, these unrecognizable elements may lead to severe autoimmune disease, gut prob…
 
From the energy of the earth to the sustaining breath of air, from the heat of fire to the nourishing force of water... ...the four elements are regarded as cornerstones that form the basis of different understandings, from religious traditions to philosophical theories. The concept of those four fundamental forces dates back centuries to when the …
 
You may have heard me talking lately about the "giant robot" in my gym - an advanced piece of exercise equipment built with a powerful two horsepower engine. It is the primary means by which I have been becoming "strong as a bull" of late with only three 20 minute strength training sessions per week. I've known about this crazy machine for years, b…

I've been podcasting twice a week now for many years. The result is several hundred episodes of content that, taken together, are a virtual library of in-depth information on topics ranging from those as specific as the best mattresses to as vast as spirituality. As we are now only hours away from 2023, I'm looking back on the past year of podcasti…
 
Cameron George knows more about kava - including the confusing myths and truths surrounding this somewhat controversial plant - more than anyone I know.

The latest "Feel Free" craze is just a bit controversial. In a previous podcast I described why you've seen me throwing back a small blue bottle of absolutely euphoric, energizing goodness that is one of my favorite discoveries of late for energy, workouts, sex, a better mood, and more. Inside the bottle is a tonic of plants from the South Pacific …
 
I describe how I have sprinkled into my daily movement snacks a very effective way to “turn on” my butt, decompress my spine, activate deep diaphragmatic breathing and much more. It all starts with gravity. Gravity has the ability to adversely affect processes in some or all of the following physiological systems: Your respiratory system, because a…
 
Right now, it seems everyone is talking about breathwork. And at this point, you probably know you ​should​ be doing it.

Last year, my sons and I watched the first season TV series called "The Chosen." It's basically the story of Jesus and his "chosen" disciples told in a very, very compelling manner. While speaking with a friend about "The Chosen," he commented to me that he knew the creator of the project, and the guy actually happened to be into fitness, recovery,…

Plant medicine, psychedelics, Christianity, spirituality. For the past year, I've been engrossed in how those topics fit together, if and how I want to incorporate those practices and concepts into my life, and what I want to share with you if you're also looking to sort through things yourself. What has been particularly helpful in this process of…
 
You probably already know that I've become increasingly disillusioned with the use of plant medicines. A key book I read that significantly informed my decisions on this topic was titled Pharmakia: The Biblical View of Drug Use, by Robert Orem. This is a book that I often mention these days when I'm discussing plant medicines (and in my opinion, if…
 
I recently got into the sport of pickleball. Coming from a competitive tennis background, I wasn't quite sure I was going to love it, especially since my only experience with pickleball until about four months ago was that it is (take no offense) a gentler "old person's" version of tennis. Holy cow, was I wrong. In the past several weeks, I've pick…

An outside…

I don't normally get worried or overthink when I'm about to interview a podcast guest. After all, I've been doing the show for a while now.

Throughout my career, I've been known as a health and fitness icon. I have to admit that I sometimes find this kind of silly. It's not that I don't think that taking care of my body is important.
